DE PROFUNDIS ~ The Blinding Light Of Faith (Transcending Obscurity Records 2018)


De Profundis ~ Blinding Light Of Faith

Gospel of the band ~ " The Blinding Light Of Faith is an album about three of the most merciless and bloodthirsty institutions in human history. There is no nation or people on this earth who haven't suffered under the savagery of at least one of the Abrahamic religions and to reflect that suffering we have made the heaviest, most aggressive record of our career."



The fifth release from De Profundis showcasing the bands ability to inflict aural wounds in a frenzied death thrash attack, with riffs that flay skin from bone rather than bludgeon through brutality. 

Blinding Light Of Faith continues a growing trend of extreme metal bands that has sought to expand their sound by blending ferocity with progressive intricacies and De Profundis pulls it off with aplomb, the relentless pace melding perfectly with the bands instinct for melody, barbed as it is. 

De Profundis, on their fifth release, definitely have their shit together.

WITCHFUCKER ~ Atomhure (2018)



Witchfucker ~ Atomhure

Part doom, part stoner, part crust, ALL bludgeon, pretty much encapsulates the latest release from Germany's Witchfucker

From the straightforward (but excellent) opener, the stoned out, doom leaden 'Delirium' to the crust of 'Killed By System' and finally 'Barfuss durch die Hölle, a track that incorporates all of the above and does it exceptionally well, as does every aspect of Atomhure.

Vocals can often kill or cure and album of this kind, some prefer growl, others, clean, on Atomhure you get something in the middle which should suit everyone and compliments the nebulous atmosphere created by copious reverb and echo from the luscious solo's which abound, particularly on the track 'Assassin' which is given a spacey, psychedelic tweak that adds to the expansive sound of an album that gorges in the deepest pit of doom. In fact, the band has been very clever by adding the excellent vocal delivery of  Charlotte Lauel (Circus Of Fools) on the track 'Hiding From Yourself' going a long way to creating variation in an already diversely interesting album.

If I published an album of the month, Atomhure would have every chance of being 'it'
